A taxi from UVF to Halcyo will run about $80US. A private hire will be the same price, unless you choose a VIP typ transfer with nicer car, beverages, etc. Those will run around $90-$125US, depending on who you book through. Some transfer companies include Serenity TVL, PHV Tours, Ben's West Coast Jeep, More Than a Cab, Christopher Taxi, and so on.

Enjoy your visit.

Try contacting phvtours.com for transfer. Great company with great prices for your transfer. Always nice to have someone holding your name up at the airport when you arrive to whisk you away to your resort of choice.

i went two years ago on my honeymoon. i didnt contact anyone for private because i did research on tripadvisor and followed someone else's idea.

when u go through customs, there are men asking if u need help. the curb is right through the double doors that are like 50 feet away.

i told him to help me and i wanted a taxi. he led me right to a van with a huge moonroof. it was awesome. he stopped so we can grab some beer, and at a cliff to take some great pics together. also told a lot about the history of the island. it cost $80 and was well spent. the roads are reallllly crazy(i get car sick) and felt we flew to our resort eventhough it was over an hour long to get to.

i did took the sandals bus back at the end of our trip and got sick!!

i felt very safe on the island so i wouldnt worry to much. even went to the casino in town!!

enjoy your trip and drink a piton for me!!

If he's charging you $120 - he's overcharging!

Bon jou mw140,

Not necessarily... depends on the amenities & services offered by the owner/operator.

Private taxi rates (fixed by gov't & taxi association) haven't been raised in years, despite land taxi owners/operators repeated demands.

USD 80 - 90/one -way per 2-3 people barely pays the cost of running a private taxi van on the N<->S route.

New taxi vans on the island now cost upwards of XCD 150,000.

Blessings! Paul
